Registering for Classes

There are three ways to register for SummerSession '15 courses:

Online Registration Instructions Mail/Fax Registration Instructions In-Person Registration Instructions

New and Visiting Students

Students who are new to The College at Brockport (anyone who has not registered for a course at Brockport within the past two years or if you have just graduated from Brockport) are required to complete and submit the The College at Brockport New Student Information Form electronically to the Office of Special Sessions and Programs. Once the completed form has been submitted and processed, a student record will be created for you, which will allow you to register for SummerSession '15 courses.

Visiting students should check with their home schools to make certain that the courses they take at The College at Brockport will transfer into their program of study at their home campus. For course descriptions, see Brockport's Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs.

Student Admission

There is no formal admission process for The College at Brockport during Summer '15. There are, however, two groups of students who may not enroll. Those who have been academically dismissed and who have not been reinstated, and those who have been denied undergraduate admission at The College at Brockport within the past year.

Permission to Register

If a SummerSession '15 course is full or requires departmental approval to register, you must contact the instructor or the department for a permission signature or a permission key number.

Course Limits for SummerSession '15

Undergraduate students may register for a maximum of 16 credits and graduate students may register for a maximum of 15 credits during SummerSession '15. Any exception to these limits requires written permission from the executive director of Special Sessions and Programs, Dr. Karen Schuhle-Williams, (585) 395-2900.

Registration Deadlines

It is important to register early. SummerSession '15 courses that do not meet a minimum enrollment may be canceled. While it is possible to register for a course as late as the first day of class, early registration helps ensure that the course will be held. Register early to be counted!

Independent Study and Directed Study

Independent Study is intended to be an extension, or spinoff, of an existing course. It provides the student with an opportunity to pursue/research a subject in more depth and in a more independent manner than would be possible in a traditional course.

Directed Study is designed to be a substitute for a course that is needed for the student's program of study but is not offered in a particular term. The material covered in such courses is essentially the same as that covered in the traditional course. Directed study is a possible option only when a course is not offered during the term or session in which the student wishes to enroll.

Independent Study and Directed Study Undergraduate Level Guidelines

Independent Study and Directed Study Graduate Level Guidelines

Students registering for an independent study or a directed study must register by Monday, July 6, 2015 at 4 pm. Registration for any course will not be accepted after 4 pm on Monday, July 6. Students must register prior to starting any directed study or independent study. Eligible students may carry no more than one Independent Study course and one Directed Study course per session during Summer '15.

Late Registration

For students with no existing Summer '15 registration, registering for courses during the Add Period of that particular session constitutes a late registration. There is a $40 fee for late registration.

Re-registration (due to not affirming enrollment online)

Students who register by Friday, May 1, 2015 and do not check the Accept button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen on or before Friday, May 1, 2015, will have their course schedule removed. Students who register on or after Saturday, May 2, 2015, and do not check the Accept button by the end of the next business day will also have their courses dropped. In both cases, late registration fees apply ($40 fee) and will be assessed for each subsequent re-registration.

Adding and Dropping Courses

Adding Courses

A student may add a course to his/her existing schedule during the add period. The student needs either the instructor's written permission or a permission key number to do this. Please contact the Office of Registration and Records, at (585) 395-2531 for Special Session course add period dates. There is no fee to add a course to an existing schedule.

Session I Monday, May 18
Session II Wednesday, June 3
Session III Wednesday, July 8
Special Sessions Deadlines Vary

Late Add Period

In exceptional circumstances, with instructor's written permission or a permission key number, students may be permitted to register for a course after the add period ends. In such cases, a student is subject to a $20 late add fee. Late fees totaling $60 are assessed if the student is not registered already for any courses.

Dropping Courses

Or stop by the Office of Registration and Records to drop a course in person.

Students adding and dropping courses after the 100 percent refund period for a session is over will be assessed tuition and fee liability for courses which have been dropped, as well as any new courses that have been added. The percentage of tuition and fees assessed for the courses dropped is shown in the section refunds. The total tuition assessed will not exceed full time tuition rates for full time students.

Dropping your Courses(s) by Fax

If you drop a course by fax, follow the instructions above for sending a request through the mail/in-person and fax your drop request to the Office of Registration and Records, (585) 395-5392. Be sure to include a cover sheet with your name and a daytime telephone number. Drops and refunds will be processed by fax transmission date. Students are responsible for verifying their drop has been completed.

Tuition Refund Schedule for all SummerSession '15 Courses

Tuition Liability

Students who are adding and dropping courses after the 100 percent refund period for a session is over, will be assessed tuition and fee liability for both the courses which have been dropped, as well as any new courses that have been added.

Class non-attendance does not excuse financial obligation. If you are registered for a class, you will be responsible for full payment of your course schedule whether or not you attend class(es).

Repeating Courses

Undergraduates may repeat a course at The College at Brockport to attempt a higher grade, but the course has to be precisely the same College at Brockport course as the one previously taken. Equivalents will not do. The most recent grade counts toward graduation requirements and the cumulative grade point average, and the previous grade remains on your permanent record. Students receiving financial aid should not attempt to repeat a course for which they received a grade of D- or higher without first checking with either the Financial Aid Office (585) 395-2501, or the Office of Academic Advisement (585) 395-2711.

Grades

Grades for all SummerSession '15 courses will be available online through Web Banner approximately two weeks after the conclusion of the course. Grade reports are not mailed to individuals.

Undergraduate Grades

Undergraduate students receive letter grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E, and I (incomplete). The satisfactory/unsatisfactory S/U option is available. For more information about the S/U grade, review the Student Policies.

Graduate Grades

Graduate students receive letter grades A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, E, and I (incomplete). They can choose the S/U (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) option for 700-level courses with department approval. For more information about the S/U grade, review the Student Policies.

Transcript Requests and Credit Transfer

Requests for official transcripts must be ordered online. The Office of Registration and Records has contracted with Credentials, Inc. to manage all official transcript request orders. Your official transcript is maintained by the State University of New York College at Brockport and is bound by the Federal law FERPA (Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974).

Placing/Tracking Your Transcript Order:

In our experience, credits earned at The College at Brockport easily transfer to other colleges. However, if you are a visiting student, you should check with your home institution before you register for SummerSession '15 and obtain written confirmation that the specific credits you expect to earn at Brockport will transfer to your home school.

Matriculation

Students who are not officially enrolled in a degree program are non-matriculated students. If you expect to earn a degree, you will have to matriculate, by which we mean you apply to formally declare your intention to pursue a degree upon admittance to The College at Brockport. Matriculation has its advantages: Your degree requirements become fixed and you are assigned a faculty advisor in that degree program. To learn more about undergraduate matriculation, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (585) 395-2751. For graduate matriculation, contact the The Graduate School at (585) 395-2525.
